The Old Kingdom - the time of magnificent pyramids - is regarded by later ancient Egyptians as the pinnacle of their civilization. What social and economic structure made it possible to build them? Why were they, and the other great monuments, built? How was everyday life in Egypt at the time? We address these questions, considering the precursors of the Old Kingdom and the causes of its final collapse.
